You could have up to 14 million uninvited guests in your home right now. And they’re hungry.
Pest control experts say that there are as many as 14 termite colonies per acre, with each colony holding up to 1 million termites – hungry creatures that love nothing more than to feast on the wood in or around your home. Any kind of wood will do: it doesn’t matter if your house is old or new, in the city or in the country. Termites may enter a vulnerable structure through the tiniest fissure in the foundation or concrete slab. They are drawn to wood and warmth, and you can blame your central heating system for making your house attractive to these common pests.
Normally termites thrive in the woods, where they feast on dead forestation. They seek other shelter and food sources when their habitat is gone. However, when an appealing location – like your home – is available, they move in. Termites cause millions of dollars of damage to homes around the country annually, and the combined costs of prevention and extermination is more than $4 billion dollars annually.
